Professional Licensure

M.S. in Art Therapy

NYU’s SARA membership does not address or eliminate the need to comply with professional licensing and/or certification board approval for any courses or programs leading to professional licensure or certification. In order to comply with U.S. Department of Education regulations, NYU is required to disclose whether the academic program meets requirements for professional licensure and/or certification in states and territories other than the State of New York:

Our academic department is in the process of researching requirements for professional licensure and/or certification outside the State of New York. Current and prospective students are strongly advised to consult with an academic advisor to review guidelines from the appropriate licensing agency or board in the state or territory of interest prior to beginning any academic program or sequence of coursework. Please review the chart below for additional information about requirements for licensure and certification in other states.

Licensure and/or Certification Complaint Procedures
For complaints related to professional licensure and/or certification, students may contact the state licensing agency.
